“I thought we hit the ball really well this weekend,” said Fjelsta. “From top to bottom.”
Fjelsta said each of the team’s pitchers pitched two innings, and that they’re only allowed to throw 10 innings over one weekend.
“It was fun for the kids,” said Fjelsta. “It’s about the kids and playing hard and learning the game.”
